before women got the right to vote. and now we just had a historic election where there are more women in congress than we have ever had before. it's really an incredible movement, and i work at emily's list, and emily's list has been working on it for 28 years to get more women on the pipeline. and we are picking it up. >> sam, it seems to me that the president was almost like an ich bin ein berliner speech. he's a man of color himself. but to embrace all of this together, i have never heard any of it -- none of this they. there was no they. it was all we, a lot of we. >> keep in mind, i thought the theme was that change can spark from the individual. in all these cases you have change being a grassroots entity, but it has to have a component of the state and government to help foster it, and the line that really stuck out to me was these truths can be self-evident, but they're not self-executing. what he made was a case for why there is an important role for the government to play to basically protect our rights but also to advance us as a society whether it's on climate change, immi
the shackles are off in the sense that he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected. he's got four years left and it's an opportunity for him to really go for it. >> well, i think we're going to see a president with a new level and a new kind of resolve as we did through the campaign. i think we're going to see some of the things we heard about already in terms of immigration reform and new moves around gun safety. i think we'll see some progress on the peacekeeping around the world, and we will see an emphasis on economic growth, which is absolutely key. >> now, he's obviously facing big, tough challenges certainly economically, and also with the republicans who still hold the house. it's a fine line, isn't it? he's already shown a sign since he got re-elected he's not going to take any nonsense from the republicans and he's being pretty tough on them. but that's not necessarily going to help him get stuff done. it may, if anything, make them more intransgent. how does he play that tricky line? >> well, you know, probably he's the better one to answer that question, but i think it's mor
do this in a peaceful, orderly way. no mob, no coop, no insurrection. >> in the u.s., elections and inaugurations are the regular heartbeat of the nation. they have not emphasized the historical significance. they began the address with these words. >> we start today a celebration of freedom. >> the first president bush had the same theme calling it democracy's big day. >> a good place to talk as neighbors and friends. this is a day when the nation is made whole, differences are suspended. >> democrats and republicans side-by-side as they take an oath to uphold and defend the constitution swearing on the bible. others prefer family bible. on sunday he placed hand on the bible from the first lady family. today, he swore on lincoln's bible and that of martin luther king whose birthday is celebrated today. many believe that george washington added a phrase that is not in the official oath itself, saying so help me god. most other presidents chose to receive as president obama did today. >> the oath i have sworn before you today, like one recited by others in this capital, was an oa
, you know, president obama is now won election twice with over 5%, 50% of the vote, which is, you know, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question
tester is glad to be in this parade. he got re-elected. >> after a tough battle, that's for sure. >> this is the wind river dancers, the wind river reservation all the way from wyoming. they are here to honor all of us with their performance. $6,000 short of their scaled-down fundraising. they are marching anyway and doing an excellent, excellent job. right now i want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer here in washington, d.c. we're right across from the president of the united states on the reviewing stand. there it is, the reviewing stand on the north lawn of the white house. kate bolduan is here, jim acosta is here and we're in "the situation room," a special edition of the situation room watching the wind river dancers from the wind river reservation in wyoming performing for the president of the united states. he's still there. he's still in the reviewing stand. the first lady, sasha and malia have gone inside. i suspect they have to get ready for the balls for tonight. >> it's a very special day, obviously, but a very long day
in the election campaign so brilliantly. i could see him there mouthing the words again, getting in the groove. he loves that stuff, and al green, al green is happy tonight, as is jennifer hudson. jason wu is going to be facing the cha-ching because he's got the upper ring and the lower ring. clothes in target and the higher end. he's going to be making a lot of dresses like that, and a lot of money. good luck to him. >> he's made the transition, ready to work, dresses to the knee. >> i think what he has done is capitalize on this entire opportunity and done it in a way without really selling out. >> and i know that you couldn't see, everybody, her shoes, but she wore jimmy choos. >> she did. >> that has become a go-to, and it's known as a very sexy shoe that you can wear and walk in. >> best shoe maker in the world, in my opinion. as a man -- >> as a man who dresses in jimmy choos -- >> as a man who regularly buys jimmy choos -- >> oh, lord. >> he's the best in the world right now, another great choice. >> she's really sticking to something that works, but i have to say, what i love was the brace
is the first african-american elected. he used language interesting to me. that we owe a lot to our founding documents. he referred a lot to the founding documents, not a lot to the founding documents. the founding fathers owned slaves. >> a process ever since. let's play a little bit about what he said. i think the constant looking back to the constitution was a very strong theme in his speech yesterday. let's play that. >> we hold these truths to be self-evident. that all men are creating equal. that they are endowed by their creator with certainly unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. >> and with that, he sort of launched into not an olive branch, he launched into here is the preparation for the fight ahead for the next four years. is that how you saw it? >> i saw it almost a campaign speech for 2014. we need congress, need to get this thing done, yeah. i saw it that way. and very interesting. the republicans and democrats are both in this death embrace. they each have their own constituents, throwing a lot of money at them on both sides. rep
. for example, jim messina, in charge of the obama re-election campaign puts out a letter, among other things, saying take a look at the president's plan to reduce gun violence and stand with him in support. wayne lapierre executive vice president of the nra issues a fundraising letter saying this. i warned you this day was coming and now it's here. it's not about protecting your children. it's not about stopping crime. it's about banning your guns period. so what are we seeing here? a real political campaign. >> on the one side you have the grassroots organization that the obama for america team use. now, they can't coordinate with the white house, wolf, on this, but they are using all of their apparatus to get out their grass root supporters because what they are trying to do is mobilize voters in much the same way that the nra has done over the years, which is make people who are for some kind of gun regulation, single issue voters and come out and pressure members of congress who may be wavering in gun states and say to them, you know, we want something done. on the o
